|AgroInfoSys AgroInfoSys is an international development service providing online assessments of agricultural information systems prototypes|
AgroInfoSys.eu is a prototyping platform for the assessment of online agricultural information systems and sub-systems built using server side ECMAScript1. AgroInfoSys.eu is sponsored by the George Boole Foundation, London. The AgroInfoSys.eu platform is located at the Navatec.com server farm located in Seattle.
We develop operational leading edge Agricultural Information Systems. Our basis for work is the practical demonstration of functionality as opposed to paper-based proposals for which feasibility often remains uncertain. Our activities therefore include proof of concept demonstrations, benchmark testing and operational capacity assessment. A fundamental part of this work it estimation of costs for implementation and operations. By applying a full project management cycle approach we can audit resource requirements to determine the feasibility and sustainability of systems according to available resources. Depending upon the information management needs and available human and financial resources we can assist any group including government, agencies, service companies and individuals plan a staged development programme. This helps minimise the risks and costs while maximising the degree of functionality of systems. We apply a prototyping model which permits potential customers review operational modules of the parts of a system that represent potential analytical or functional challenges. As a result of proof of concept based upon operational modules, the risk, on the part of the customer, is significantly lowered because feasibility is proven and the development team can implement systems quicker and to a higher standard than through conventional methods of design/implementation.
